On Tuesday, 16th place Celta Vigo hosts third place Atletico Madrid in a top flight Spanish La Liga showdown between one club fighting to stay out of the relegation zone and one battling for a Champions League qualification. Celta is 7-14-13 on 35 points and six points clear of the drop zone following a 1-1 draw with Real Betis on Saturday. Cetla was denied a penalty that could have given them the victory, after the referee reviewed the play on VAR.

Celta has two victories, two draws and one loss in its last five matches played in La Liga. Over that span of fixtures, Celta has scored 11 goals, while its backline and goalkeepers have given up 8 goals including five in a loss of 5-1 to Mallorca. Iago Aspas is the leading goal scorer for Celta Vigo with 13, while the second leading scorer Santi Mina has just four goals, and Denis Suarez is the leader in assists with five.

Atletico is 16-14-4 on 62 points and tightened its grip on a Champions League qualification spot with a 3-0 drubbing of Mallorca in its most recent outing. Atletico is five points in front of fourth-place Sevilla and 8 points ahead of fifth place Villarreal. Alvaro Morata scored a brace to lead Atletico to the easy victory. Koke scored the other goal for Atletico. The Madrid-based club has an outside shot at catching second place Barcelona but trails the Catalans by eight points with just four matches remaining.

Atletico has four wins and one draw and its last five matches played across all competitions. During those five fixtures, Atletico has scored 9 goals, while its backline and goalkeepers have allowed three goals. The defense has had three clean sheets in the last five matches played. Alvaro Morata is the leading goal scorer with 11, while Saul Niquez and Joao Felix each have six. Angel Correa is the leader in assists with six.

Free Soccer Pick:

UNDER 2.5

Both Celta Vigo and Atletico have played very well since returning from the coronavirus hiatus, but Atletico has the far better defense and has held Celta scoreless in each of the last five fixtures head-to-head. While Atletico will defeat Celta on the road Tuesday, the play here is the UNDER. The two clubs have averaged just just a combined two goals per match over the last five played head-to-head. Final Score Prediction, Atletico Madrid wins 1-0 but our best play is UNDER
